Cotton Museum At The Memphis Cotton Exchange

Cotton Museum At The Memphis Cotton Exchange

The mission of the Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange is to share the story of the cotton industry and its many influences on daily life, the arts, and the development of this region with students, residents, and visitors. They accomplish this through interpretive exhibits, educational programs, and research archives on the floor of the historic Memphis Cotton Exchange — in the city that remains the epicenter of worldwide cotton trading.

We hope you enjoy our work.
